Smt. Sharada Devi is one of my brilliant Senior Students.
She has been with me Studying Vedanta, Sanskrit and Vedic chanting in Bali now for over 10 years and continues to study and teach the same. She has Studied Directly from Sri Swami Dayaananda Saraswati in the Traditional Ashram context and discipline for a year and participated in various camps.
She is highly committed and well established in all aspects of Vedic traditional structure, Attitudes, and Values, she embodies these values and is constantly sharing the same with all her devoted students. Sharada is a qualified Celebrant in her own right having been traditionally initiated with major Hindu Vedic Samskaaras ie. spiritual initiations.
She has been blessed by her revered teachers and embodies these rites of passage and Initiates others who sincerely ask and are ready to receive these priceless transformational blessings in their lives.
In her Devotional Yajna Spirit, she has been organizing and conducting Sacred Feminine Women’s circles empowering women to profoundly heal themselves at all levels and has inspired many women to do the same.
Sharada has classically trained in Odissi a form of Bhaarata Naatya sacred devotional Dance, a profound form of Meditation – integrating body mind and spirit to be one with Deity.
She is deeply immersed in all aspects of Traditional devotional Ishvara Pujaa and has trained so many sincere yogic students in these priceless spiritual practices. She has been teaching mainly in Bali live classes individuals and groups in established International Yoga Teacher Trainings, and also on the web through “Vaidika Dharma” & Her Sacred “Be Woman Project” and during summer months she teaches in Sweden, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, Holland etc. with Ishvara Guru and Shaastras grace profound for Jnaana Vairaagya Moksa Siddhih.
May her sacred Yajna continue timelessly blessing all that come to be blessed by her guidance and teaching.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to have studied with Sharada devi for more than 3 years now, being lovingly guided and supported in Vedanta classes, learning different beautiful pujas and sacred Vedic mantras. I’ve also been learning Sanskrit with her for the past couple of years which seemed so impossible before, but with Sharada’s guidance and help, I’m now able to understand more than I ever thought possible! I’m constantly in wonder at her love, patience and knowledge. I always feel so welcome to join Sharada’s classes, to ask questions, to laugh, to cry – no judgement, no agenda to be any different, and feeling totally accepted just as I am. Her devi circles have been transformational for me. I feel each time I get a little more courage to open my heart and share. I sink more into my devi heart in a relaxed way, listening to guided meditations, honouring each other and seeing ourselves as sacred mirrors. I wish this experience for all women – it’s so important for our growth, comfort and and well being. I hope I have enough grace to be with Sharada for many more years to come.”
